found interesting. steve moore of "the wall street journal" said we had heard that i'm not going to negotiate with the president anymore and now we find out that the president told speaker boehner that the country doesn't have a spending problem. does this tell you anything you that you don't need to know about the democratic agenda? >> is that we think we should be spending more than $3 trillion a year. >> when you're dealing with that, it's hard to know how you're going to negotiate with that. gerri: thank you for coming on tonight, it's always great to see you. >> thank you. gerri: the best laid plans of mice and men. like the tax bonanza that democrats are eagerly awaiting. that may already be behind us. more than 1000 public companies declared special dividends. the president lobbied to put things in place to make sure that the wealthy pay their fair share. but some did better than oters. not only did cost no paid early dividends to avoid taxes, but they made it a mega-dividend. $3 billion. equip equivalent to more than six years of that. not only do they frontload the paym
